. americans deserve better. all of those words were taken from then senator obama's statement before he voted against raising the debt ceiling in 2006. truer words cannot have been spoken today. the debt burden the president was concerned about a few years ago is still a very real threat today. congress should pass a responsible budget so we have a road map to get to our serious debt burden. no budget, no pay. >> i'm not sure i need this stool, but i'm a freshman. i'm new. i was sworn in just three weeks ago today and as a new member of the 113th congress, i know how they do things in washington, d.c.,. i know how they do things in missouri's 2nd congressional district. i'm a mother of three kids and have small business roots and all i know is that every family, every household, every business, every individual must have and pass a budget. we must live within our means. it is past time, way past time for the united states senate to pass a responsible budget that is going to put us on a path towards prosperity and is going to grow our economy and is going to create jobs and increase the standa
payments. in 2006, when speaking in opposition to increasing the debt limit, the senator obama said the fact that we are here today to debate raising america's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. those comments hold true today. that is why it is disappointing that the president is declining to engage in a meaningful dialogue to identify a responsible, balanced approach to reduce spending. and, reducing the deficit, which the president promised to cut in half during his first term. of course, it is tough to cut the deficit when the senate, controlled by the president's own party, will not or cannot even produce a budget. it has been four years since the democrat-controlled senate has passed a budget. that is a disgrace. i fully expect republicans and democrats will disagree about what the budget should look like, even when one party has a majority in both the senate and house, the two parties often disagree. the failure to resolve the differences is the problem. how can we even start to find common ground if senate democrats will not tell us where they stand? in the first pla
the senate. president obama is going to serve second term that is the message this week in washington, right? at the inauguration and the parade and the fancy dress dances and the obamas showing off at the white house with the dog. but away from washington, outside the beltway, republicans are working fast right now to use their power in the states to make it so that democrats structurally cannot win no matter what. joining us now is donald mceachin. senator, thank you very much for your time. it's great to have you here. >> thanks for having me, rachel. >> were you surprised by how quickly republicans in your state passed these new maps? did you know this was coming? >> absolutely not, rachel. you know, we asked for a heads-up back in november if they were going to do this. and we were sure we would be given the heads-up. in a span of literally 40 minutes, because they limited debate. literally in 40 minutes, they rewrote 40 senate districts without any input from the public, without any input from my side of the aisle. they rammed it down our throats. even though it was daylight outside, i
its job and you'll hear from senator rob portman and the news media telling president obama to go for the throat of the g.o.p. tonight he's fighting back and blaming his critics, all that and much more ahead. on the record starts right now. >> we should start with spending and debt. >> we haven't had a budget here for almost four years. >> in washington d.c., and i think we can agree on one thing that the worst-run institution in america is the united states congress. we need to do something different. >> i've never had this happen in my lifetime. i've never been alive where there is a genuine viceral fear of action by government against individuals. >> it's my hope that the president will finally be willing to do what republicans have been asking him to do since his first inauguration four years ago. >> i'm very glad that they-- i want to congratulate the house for directing people's attention to the failure of the senate under leader reid to bring us a budget to the floor. >> we support the idea that that ought not to be a political football that by becoming that, does damage to
that the senate openly welcomes and might i add, the president of the united states, president obama would sign this legislation. and he said so in the statement administration policy. reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from massachusetts. mr. mcgovern: mr. speaker. i yield myself such time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. mcgovern: i'm glad the gentleman from texas agrees with harry reid. i hope he agrees with harry reid on more things in the future, but the fact of the matter is this show business before us does nothing other than postpone this debate on the debt ceiling for three months. it doesn't require a finished product. it does not require that we actually have something that amounts to a deal that goes to the president's desk. this is, you know, the house will pass their extreme budget like they always do. the senate will probably do something. and then nothing else is required. there's no requirement for a deal in order to get your pay. i mean, this is show b
